Consumed

Consumed,
They forget to look outside,
To lift their eyes and appreciate
The world beyond their minds
Hollow souls slowly wasting,
Hungry for endless validation
An existence shaped by numbers,
They breathe a faceless world
Held within an emphatic vice
Of likes, tweets and followers,
They satiate their appetites
But still, emptiness persists,
And darkness consumes them
